Do you find yourself struggling with decisions because you feel conflict between what you want (or think you want) and what you’re told you should want? Do you want to forge your own path in business, and in life, but not sure how to do it, or where to start? Then don’t miss this episode of the Sassy Strategist podcast where host Kim Dawson interviews Jamie Chapman, a Creative Consultant in business and life, who supports women running small to medium-sized businesses.

Jamie shares new and interesting perspectives on goal setting, getting clear on what you really want, and how being open to possibilities can move your business, and life, forward. Jamie and I talk about how to embrace uncertainty, and let go of rigid rules and what you think you need. We also discuss why plans typically don’t work the way you think they should and present the question - do you even need a plan?



-Moving away from black and white thinking or the need to fit into a box. 

-Getting clear on what you really want in your life and business, and running your business in a way that supports it. 

-Considering an alternative perspective to goal setting - don't think of it as setting a goal, think of it as deciding on your destination. 

-Taking risks in your business, and knowing when it may be the right time to invest in your business.

-How can consultants, coaches and/or strategists help you, and what are the similarities and differences between them. 

-How to change the narrative and embrace possibilities.
